From its inception, Macy's Herald Square was a store unlike any other. Over the past 150 years, it has become a true New York City icon. Built in 1902, Macy's Herald Square was the first building to have the modern-day escalator, and it has continued to be a trendsetter. Today, "America's Largest Department Store" covers an entire city block with 11 levels of the latest fashions for you and your home. Macy's offers a full-service Visitor Center on the Mezzanine Level, plus restaurants throughout the store and exciting events almost every day.

My daughter and I went to New York for a whole 7 days. We had been before but only overnight and so we were so excited as we chose our hotel to be as near to Macy's Herald square as possible. It took us like 4 minutes on the first day to get into Macy's. We never expected it to... More

If you have the time and energy - it is wonderful to visit this huge department store, the one we've seen in so many movies and TV shows. Before beginning with your shopping, go to the Visitor's Center on the first floor and get a 10% discount card. During the holiday season Macy's is famous for their elaborated window decorations....

We decided to got to Macy's in the evening as a way of winding down a busy day! We were blown away with the sheer size of the place. We must have spent around 3 hours there but I know we did 't get round it all. There was so much to see and explore there - I suppose it... More

From the outside you can not determine how big this place is. I believe that whatever you are looking for you will find it. Look for the wooden stairs it will take you back to the 40's

I really enjoy this store having watching miracle on 34th street there is something very nostalgic about it. It's had a big face lift and I enjoyed the beauty hall and accessories. The men's sports section was good and my partner found lots of sports wear he likes. The only downside which is unfortunate is the staff member that served... More

Being the world’s largest department store, I expected it to rival Harrods and Selfridges (London) if not exceed them; however, what we found was a lot of cheaper designer clothing but poorer quality. One would be better off spending more money in Europe and getting a higher quality garment from the same brand. I ended up purchasing some fragrances although... More

Wanted to see what the hype was all about. Nice to have a look around but very very expensive. Loved the big piano however. But still glad I went. If money is no object then you will definitely find something you like inside.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
